    Waze was running in the background and whoever pinned the cop pinned him way too late. The R1 got heavy interference from the V1 and just ignored this Ka signal and I couldn't see crap between all these cars. Lucky for me my timing was perfect and this La Marque PD could see even less of me so I snuck right by him like a cat through a sliding glass door.

    What is the PSL? Seems like it is way too low.

    65 which is a bit low however, in addition to revenue the other reason they patrol this section is because there's a construction zone about 2 miles ahead.

    Even been slowed down by a “moving road block?”
    Shame speed enforcement LEO’s cannot be similarly bottled up by a group of cars.

    1100ft encounter when it would of been at least 4000ft with the R1
    I know you wont stop running the combo
    But that would end it for me

    No, I've been running with the V1 off lately but I'd had a detection with the DPS on the other side of the freeway earlier and not shut it off. But to your point clearly there's interference between the V1 and the R1. The R1 was dead asleep.

    The V1 definitely emits the sleeping potion. Would be great if they could be run reliably together.

    I'm not sure they ever will. The Redline and the V1 was probably the best combo and even the Redline went to sleep sometimes. I think running dual detectors is best left to the nut jobs like me. Maybe a remote type would work better? My old SR7 and V1 always seemed to work well together but I hate to lose that incredible Uniden Ka range.

    I am pretty sure I have seen that Caprice shooting laser on the opposite side around the Tanger Outlets area, also in the left shoulder. Unless I am getting them confused with League City PD, it was a binocular looking device which I I think is a Kustom Prolite.

    That stretch of the Gulf freeway is the worst, for some reason everyone is always going so slow and they are bunched up!

    That could also be Webster PD, they shoot a ProLite and a PL3. Last gun I ID'd from League City was an Ultralyte 20/20 but that's been some years ago. I saw an LCPD Charger shooting on highway 3 around the park a few weeks ago but he didn't take a shot at me.

    This is probably Texas City not La Marque since I caught him out there once before on video. Once I checked it, it's the same guy. This Caprice shoots a new Stalker XLR. He's out there pretty regularly on the weekends.

    @KCsilverado has run the R3 and NetRadar (I believe) together.

    Damn, your taste in music is eclectic.

    I ran R3 and the HD+ (now RC-M) together for quite a while. Never could determine if I was seeing any interference. HD under the hood in the grill and R3 high on the windshield.
